A Bullseye for Fans of Ecchi Action
Mild-mannered high school student Shinichiro has no defining features whatsoever so it's a good thing he's shacking up with Sakuya, the latest in a long line of demon hunters who fight with enchanted bows. See them battle with the most dangerous monster of all--cheeky sexual situations!--when the anime adaptation of Isuca arrives in 2015.

Start Turning the Rumor Mill
OK guys, the Persona 5 trailer has hit so let the wild speculation begin! The newspaper headlines on the train mention a tax hike, random acts of violence and a corrupt court system--basically the same things Japan's talking heads mull over on the nightly news. Then the main visual shows school chairs with shackles, so I'm betting that the existential threat this time around is society at large and how it binds us to compliance out of fear. We'll have to wait until next year to know for sure!

Judge, Jury and Executioner
Organized crime is a cancer on society that high school student Arashi Mikami will cut out before it can spread. Highschool of the Dead author Shouji Sato delivers his trademark trifecta of guns, girls and gore in Triage X. Watch for the anime as soon as Japan loosens its censorship laws to let it on the air.

A Day in the Life with Senpai
Teekyu crams more gags into its two-minute run time than full-length shows so bringing it back for a forth season is the most economically sound choice that the industry has ever made. Maybe they'll even get around to playing a game of tennis this time around!
